the church in the wildwood

As fifteen-year-old Joseph Carver peels back the layers of a haunted past, he finds himself lost in the shadow of his mother's unorthodox religion; desperate to uncover the truth about his father's death and the sister he never met - learning that sometimes, it is only through great loss that you can finally let go and begin to understand your own story.

Early praise for The Church In The Wildwood... 

You did an exceptional job at drawing me in very quickly...keeping me hungry for answers...getting me emotionally involved (tear).  L.K. ~ beta reader, round one

Beautiful, descriptive language...I loved it! It was interesting and engaging and I didn't want to sleep! H.E. ~ beta reader, round one

An intriguing story. It kept me hooked all the way through.  M.M. ~ beta reader, round one

...a rich cast of diversely motivated characters that are flawed yet 'root-for-able'.  R.W. ~ beta reader, round two

This is one of those rare stories that leaves you almost gasping, mind wrestling with different issues long after you close the last page. 
B.A ~ beta reader, round two amazing book...complicated and artistically written. ~ M.E. ~ beta reader, round three

Plans are well underway for a big launch party in June and it would be great to see you there! While it's amazing fun to plan an event for a project that has consumed my heart for so long, it also comes with many expenses: venue, food, drinks, swag, print-runs, advertising, etc. If you're wondering how you can help me make it happen, consider making a donation to help cover some of the costs. Every little bit will help me bring my vision to full reality.

Thank you for being such an integral part of my writing and publishing journey!
